I’d call your doctor. Mirena is only good for 5 years; it’s possible yours is on its way out.  Maybe replacing it would help your issues.  Especially since pregnancy with an IUD of any kind can be dicey.

Could it be possible you have another condition that’s effecting your periods like fibroids?

It seems strange to me that you wouldn’t have a period for 2 years and then all of a sudden you’re getting one. That would make me suspect something other than the Mirena causing it.

Either way I would make an appointment with your gyno to see what’s going on

I would take another pregnancy test and regardless of outcome, call your doctor to see what she suggests you should do.

I have endometriosis and have had the Mirena for almost 2 years now.  I don’t get a period with it at all.  It is hard to test for endometriosis, it is pretty much a collection of symptoms and not having anything else diagnosed.  You might want to get checked for PCOS, sometimes pills when you are younger mask symptoms of diseases that you may have.

FutureMrsJohnson_:  Towards the end of its life, Mirena can cause your periods to come back. I found getting closer to the 5 year mark, I was feeling like a raging bitch! No bleeding, but very moody. Libido lowered. My gyn said I could leave the Mirena in even longer, but due to my symptoms that it was better if I replaced it. The hormones can wane over time, causing the unpleasant symptoms you are getting. It is probably time to replace it.

With the first one, I did get acne on my chin. I saw my GP who described a cream which cleared it up really quickly and have had no problems since. So don’t suffer with the acne. I did have an option to go on low dose antibiotics but decided to go with the cream instead.
